The book We are Voulhire: A New Arrival under Great Skies written by Matthew Tysz is the first book in the We are Voulhire series. It serves as an introduction to the significant plot of the story that progresses throughout all books in the series. The key characters are introduced, we learn the background, and the stage is set. A young man named Galen has traveled to the city of Magnum Caelum to take over his uncle’s blacksmith shop and encounters his uncle’s executor, Rowan. The two instantly bond and become friends. Lord Eldus Alderman and his family have been asked to move to the town of Hillport by King of Voulhire to transform this impoverished town into a center of commerce and life. These seemingly unrelated characters become more connected at the end of the book when major events happen and set the tone for the next novel.
The positive aspects of the book are that it is easy to follow and easy to understand. Even though the book is switching between multiple characters in various chapters throughout, the author has done a brilliant job preventing the reader from getting confused. He has even included a list of terms at the end and a map in the beginning, so the process of properly understanding the plot is easier for everyone I think this was a pleasant addition to the story.
We are Voulhire: A New Arrival under Great Skies was so eloquently written that there were no downsides that I could find. The book was thoroughly revised and reviewed so that the readers could genuinely enjoy it without being distracted by errors and mistakes.
I rate We are Voulhire: A New Arrival under Great Skies 4 out of 4 stars because it is humorous, exciting, and thought-provoking. It left you thinking about what would happen next because of character words or actions they undertook. The wide-ranging conversations between the characters were not too bland but incorporated just enough humor to provoke a genuine laugh out of you every once in and while. The author put much time and effort into this book, and undoubtedly deserves nothing less than an excellent score.
The book would appeal most to people who are typically passionate fans of books that are about fantasies or magic and Kingdoms. There is some profanity involved, and some of the humor may be too much for some so carefully consider this when deciding to read, but I believe this book would be appropriate for any person in high school or above.
